Much colder air on the move
During the weekend, colder air will settle across the Midwest, South, and East. Early next week, a new push of cold air will arrive across the northern Plains and upper Midwest, where some sub-zero temperatures can be expected.
During the next 5 days, a series of storms will continue to produce generally light precipitation across the North and East. Widespread snow will fall from the Cascades to the northern Rockies. Late-week snow can also be expected from parts of the northern Corn Belt into New England. Meanwhile, generally dry weather will prevail from central and southern California to the southern Plains.
The 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near- to above-normal precipitation across the majority of the U.S., with near-normal temperatures in the nation’s mid-section.
